“Ajimobi related freely with all his colleagues and was one of my Egbons.
“He was also fond of his family, especially of his wife, Florence, who I always call my sister. My heart goes out to his beloved wife Florence, their lovely children and grand-children, the entire Ajimobi family, the Government and the good people of Oyo State, and my brother the current Governor, Seyi Makinde, during this sad moment.
“May God give the family and his loved ones the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”
